Samples: SMC Pentax-FA 43mm F1.9 Limited

mount: Pentax K
format: 35mm FF
year: 1997 (introduced, still in production)
max aperture: 1.9
min aperture: 22
elements/group: 7/6
aperture blades: 8
min focus distance (mm): 450
filter diameter (mm): 49
length (mm): 27
weight (g): 155

additional information: It is believed that the 43mm focal length was chosen as it is "perfect normal" on a 35mm FF camera. The "Limited" designation does not mean that this lens is issued in small quantities, but simply means that it is a premium in the Pentax line up. Being a fairly late film-era lens, the SMC Pentax-FA 43mm F1.9 Limited (usually shortened as FA 43) does support in-body motor autofocus on supported Pentax bodies. However it also has an aperture ring, permitting it to be used on Sony bodies as well as older Pentax film bodies. Just be sure to unlock the aperture from the 'A' position.

This thread is open for C&C and for posting additional pictures. Please ONLY post pictures taken with the lens in the title- or start a new thread.
Please state camera, version of the lens and adapter in your post!
